Last night at the library we made these amazing little Mini Scrapbooks out of recycled paper tubes, scrapbook paper, and paper embellishments. I think they would make great little gifts for friends birthdays, graduation gifts, or even for a family event! Another craft program with Kim Romig is scheduled for Thursday, February 23 from 2-3 pm (February recess). Also, there is a Fun with Fondue program with the Tops cooking school on Thursday, February 16 from 6:30-7:30 pm. Check out the Teen Programs tab for more information. Best of all, the programs are FREE!

How do you feel about Christmas music? I am a huge fan, and have mixed my own master playlist of about 150 songs. Here are some of my favorite Christmas albums:
1. The Best Christmas record of all time. Ever.
2. I loved the show, and I loved the soundtrack. So relaxing....
3. Nat King Cole had one of the smoothest voices ever. An eternal classic at holiday time.
4. The original "techno" Christmas CD - groundbreaking, and still beautiful and timely.
5. Dino has become one of my Christmas favorites!
8. My daughter got this CD, and I admit, I fell in love with it, too.
9. This Treasurey has so many great songs on it: Greg Lake's Father Christmas, Feliz Navidad by Jose' Feliciano, the Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth duet with Bing and David Bowie, and the White Christmas done by the Drifters (think The Santa Claus).
10. One of my favorite Country Christmas CD's - the SheDaisy version of Jingle Bells is one of my all time favorite versions of the song.
10. (tie) My other favorite country Christmas CD - I love the title song, and City of Silver Dreams. Released in 2009 - it's a keeper!

I was really looking forward to reading this novel, a joint effort of Jay Asher (Thirteen Reasons Why) and Carolyn Mackler (The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things). The major premise of the story, that neighbors Josh and Emma power up an AOL CD in Emma's computer in 1996 and somehow access their Facebook pages of the future was really hard to buy into, but it still intrigued me. What I did find interesting was the way the two characters reacted to the knowledge of their future selves, and how their relationship shifted in the book. On a scale of 1-10, I'd give the book about a 6, and recommend it as a quick read. I finished it in one afternoon car ride, in less than 3 hours. Click on the book, and watch the video on amazon.com, and read what others had to see about this highly anticipated book of 2011!
